Thanks. It's a more mature response than mine to the "Obama is a little girl who soiled his panties" / Pelosi sex change posts, and I'm grateful that you're up to it.

Ditto with Werner and Ed-What a shame to shut down the Climate Thread, Big Big mistake there Mr ST.

Chris: As we all know: it's your forum. I think freezing threads is much more reasonable than deleting them.

Sorry about all the whiners here.

Carry on.

I appreciate Supertopo, but to start locking down threads is a good way to kill the forum.

Ed and Werner nailed it.

Free the Climate Change Thread!

"We simply don't want to host these kinds of discussions (despite their popularity), and thus we'd ask you to: a) please refrain from starting politically oriented threads on SuperTopo..." -CMac

I gather you probably feel the same way regarding the OT science, religion and belief-oriented threads as well.

Actually this is getting pretty close to comedy.

I agree with Ed that this policy will enable just the tw#ts we hope to quash. This policy is sort of like the concept general public yielding of personal liberties in fear of terrorism.

Don't tread on me either.

Although the climate change thread was polluted by the ill-informed rantings of a few, it also contained a lot of posts from a few guys like Chiloe who work in the field and provided (what I consider at least) to be really valuable insider updates on the state of play....not something us average Joe's usually have access to.

It was easy enough to ignore the blowhards, but rather than freezing the thread it would have been much better to give us an ignore this user option.

I think you have an alarmist perspective,

This thread is degenerating. Freeze it now!

No need to freeze it. Chris has had a talk with The Moose.

Actually I have constructed a test that will eliminate from the site those who are not real climbers. Have our computers fitted with a device to detect where we are looking, and ban everyone who looks at the wrong part of this photo.

Once upon a time there was a guy that was tired of sh#t, so he had an elective surgery to sew his as#@&%e up tight. End of problem.

Well JSTAN, that pretty much puts me on the sidelines.

Thanks Chris!

While you're at it, freeze the gun debate thread, ASAP. Worst one here, bar none. Ammo this, ammo that, give me a break.

I'm on board Chris!

Ed - I disagree with you. It was painful watching you and Chiloe get sucked into that black hole of willful ignorance. Your life got better.
